Rjómabúið Erpsstaðir


Erpsstadir is a dairy farm in Northwest Iceland, run by farmers Thorgrimur Einar Gudbjartsson and Helga Elínborg Guðmundsdóttir. Erpsstaðir, with about 60 dairy cows, are best known for their small-batch dairy products such as ice cream, the traditional Icelandic Skyr, caraway cheese, white and wet cheese and various other dairy products which the “Cream Shop” at Erpsstaðir processes. All the milk for the production is from the dairy cows on the farm. For other ingredients Þorgrímur and Helge strive to use local, seasonal flavours whenever possible, such as rhubarb, dandelion honey and blueberries. The farmers at Erpsstaðir are pleased to offer visitors the chance to take a closer look at the milk production. Visitors at Erpsstaðir can experience a real Icelandic farm and buy homemade artisan dairy products first hand. Thorgrímur and Helga also offer accommodations for interested visitors.
